New Project

I’ve started a new quilt top (I figure it can join my growing collection of tops. With enough of them, they’ll be just as useful as a finished quilt, right?)

I’m fighting against my natural urge to rush to finish a project now that it’s started. I always end up cutting corners and not being quite happy with the finished project when I do that, and it tends to lead to burn out. So I’m trying to take my time.

I’m not very good at it. Isn’t that weird? I have to actively fight against myself to slow down and enjoy the process. To make it fun instead of work. I’m not sure I want to know what that says about me.

Quilt-Design-A-Day from 5-18

Anyhow, this is a currently unnamed quilt, but the design is from a recent QDAD project.

Scissors for scale.

The log cabins are quite small. The center squares are 1/2″ and the log cabins will finish at 4″. This is what happens when you design things without taking into account the making of the things. But I like how delicate they are.

One extra for the back. Should I ever get around to making this a real quilt.

All the log cabins are done. Now, I just need to turn them into a top. And maybe enjoy the process of doing so along the way!
